Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer: King of Bercy

2012 King of Bercy Supercross Results

By far the largest European Supercross event, the SX of Paris Bercy presents many challenges for the grid over three days of racing.

But when the race wrapped up Sunday in Paris, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer was crowned “King of Bercy,” the KX450F rider taking the overall title after a 1-1-2 finish.

Before a sold-out stadium crowd, Weimer won all of his heat races, and took the Friday- and Saturday-night wins. But on Sunday, Weimer’s fellow countryman, GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac, took the race win. Weimer would finish second, though, earning him the title. With it, Weimer became the 21st King of Bercy.

Jake Weimer (Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F) says: “I made it tough on myself but I wasn’t surprised because I was pretty nervous on Sunday. It was important for me to wrap it up so all day I kinda rode a bit cautious and tight. The three nights here are nerve-wracking.

“I knew I needed to do well on the first night to have a chance at the win. Then on the second you want to continue the roll but coming to the third night I knew only I could blow it! It is a like a little championship. It is not easy, and I’m glad I got it done!

“It’s really awesome to be the King of Bercy because all my heroes came and raced and won hère. This is my second year in Paris and I had fun in ’11 but did not give myself much of a chance, but this time I wanted it. It is amazing to be able to get on the plane knowing I have this achievement chalked off.”
